Sign me up for Castle Crashers on Switch

[Update: In addition to the Switch tease, there's also a nod to Castle Crashers on PS4.] The thought hadn't crossed my mind lately, but yeah, Castle Crashers would rule pretty hard on Nintendo Switch. In a tweet today, The Behemoth seemed t...

Review: Pit People

I really admire The Behemoth. The studio has found success time and time again without resorting to sequels, charting a varied course from Alien Hominid to Castle Crashers to BattleBlock Theater. The team's latest, Pit People, lives in yet ...

Throw cheese in StarCraft II as a cartoon overlord

StarCraft II's third and final expansion, the Protoss-themed Legacy of the Void, came out a little less than a year ago. Since then, players looking to freshen up their game could play a Nova-centric side story, but that's about it.&nb...

Pit People beta invites going out, check your inbox

I don't really know what to make of Pit People. Like most Behemoth games it's kind of just on my radar, but once I've actually gotten my hands on it I'll probably fall in love. A few of us will get that chance soon, as the developer ha...

Review: Castle Crashers Remastered

In 2008, Castle Crashers rekindled my dormant love of beat-'em-ups. It had imaginative characters, strange and varied locales, and the four-player co-op was great at encouraging friendly competition. There wasn't much else like it back then...

The Behemoth's Game 4 becomes Pit People

The upcoming strategy game from Castle Crashers maker The Behemoth is memorable. Its old temporary name, "Game 4," was not. It's now called Pit People, which is weird but fitting. "Pit People was the name written on the original concept ske...

Flash game portal Newgrounds turns 20 years old today

These days, Tom Fulp is probably best known for his work with The Behemoth, behind games like Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers. Way back in the day, I knew him as the guy in charge of Newgrounds. I spent a ton of time (probably too much) i...

More games need cupcakes as playable characters

I'm a jerk who totally forgot about The Behemoth's Game 4 despite playing a fun chunk of the tactical role-playing title alongside its narrator, Will Stamper, and loving every minute of it. So to selfishly put it back on my mind -- and to ...

The Behemoth's Game 4 is the strangest SRPG I've ever played

No, the next game from The Behemoth isn't a sequel to Castle Crashers. I mean, yeah, that'd be nice to have one day, but I'm loving how the studio is continuing to try new things. And its next project, the to-be-properly-named "Game 4," is ...
